B&H did a writeup of the EOS R and they indicated that Canon has launched with 4 new R-lenses, plus adapters for some of the older glass.

And the new lenses are fast. Real fast.

We mentioned that the new lenses would be intriguing, so let us begin with the monster of a lens that is the 28-70mm. An all-purpose full-frame zoom with a constant f/2 aperture? Yes, please. We don’t have anything close to this in the DSLR world. Though it is still quite hefty at 3.15 lb with a large 95mm front filter diameter, if you ever desired this kind of speed, the RF system is the only way to get it.Right along with this ultra-fast zoom is an even faster 50mm prime. Taking the beautiful idea of a 50mm f/1.2, Canon has redeveloped it with improvements across the board for its full-frame mirrorless cameras. This lens is fast, sharp, and has a speedy AF motor. Another prime being announced is a 35mm f/1.8 macro. This lens will be well suited to close-up imaging with its 6.7” minimum focus distance and 1:2 magnification ratio, while its wide-angle field of view, built-in stabilization, and relatively fast f/1.8 aperture mean it can work as a very practical and compact option for the mirrorless system. This lens receives a large benefit from the RF mount, because it can be smaller and more feature-rich than DSLR optics.

One last piece of glass will likely be the most popular of the bunch, if the history of Canon’s DSLR lenses is any indicator of success. The RF system is getting its own 24-105mm f/4L IS USM. This is going to be available as a kit with the camera body, which we will discuss, promises smaller size with excellent IQ, and even packs in image stabilization. This lens will be popular since its wide-angle to telephoto range will cover many shooters’ essential needs. It is the first L-series optic with NANO USM for fast, silent shooting.

I have a bunch of EF lenses, so the adapter will work with those, but the EF-S lenses wont, so if I were to move up, it’d require a new investment.

Then again, I’m not a professional, and I take the photos for enjoyment.
